About Ditto Forensic FieldStation

Stay home, send Ditto: Save time and money.

The hand-held Ditto Forensic FieldStation travels with you or a technician for use in creating local, remote, or networked disk clones and images, including logical imaging of user-selectable lists of files and folders. Configure and manage via network or on the unit itself. The Ditto FieldStation also helps you log user activity and maintain your chain of custody while using forensic (write-blocked) methods.


Remote operation

An easy-to-use web browser interface supports remote operation via network or VPN, providing access to Ditto configuration, user administration and user rights, as well as direct operation of Ditto cloning and imaging operations. This time- and money-saving capability speeds time to data capture, as well as allows organizations to optimize staffing and deployment.


Create logical and physical images in the field

The built-in menu system makes it easy to configure and perform forensic captures without an attached computer. Optionally, attach a computer for additional options such as generating complete listings of drive or file system contents to facilitate discovery, or automatically capture specific file types using the following Logical Image Modes:

  • Manual select
  • All files and directories
  • All files not part of a Windows OS
  • All files not part of a Windows OS or programs
  • Windows Registry files
  • All files from the Windows Users directory
  • All temporary files created by Windows
  • All files except Swap and Hibernate
  • All most commonly used media files
  • All Microsoft Office files
  • All financial files
  • User-customized profiles


Source Inputs (write-blocked)

Ditto natively supports many write-blocked inputs: SATA, eSATA, PATA, USB 3.x/2.0. Additional acquisition interfaces are available via expansion modules, such as the Ditto USB Expansion ModuleDitto SAS Expansion ModuleDitto FireWire Expansion Module, and Network Tap Module.


Destination Outputs

Use dual SATA outputs simultaneously with the same performance as one eSATA (single, dual and mirrored). Images can also be output to large volumes, including NAS and other network destinations, as well as portable RAID enclosures.


Data Acquisition Modes

Clone, DD, E01, L01 with MD5, SHA-1, or SHA-256 hashing. Ditto also offers a combined mode that captures a clone and DD or E01 (to different destination drives) in a single pass reading of the suspect drive.


Pause and Resume

The Ditto was the first to include a pause and resume feature. When creating a Physical Image DD, the investigator may pause the imaging process, disconnect everything for secure storage and then come back later to resume the image without losing any previous work.


Image Restore

Restore an image to a Destination drive to create a bootable clone of the original drive.


S.M.A.R.T. and hdparm Data

The Ditto allows investigators to collect S.M.A.R.T and hdparm data for any connected device.


Hard Drive Password Lock/Unlock and Encryption

The Ditto automatically identifies drives that are firmware password protected. The investigator may enter the password if known to unlock the drive. The Ditto also supports whole disk encryption using the AES 256 OPAL encryption schema. If known, the investigator can enter the passphrase to decrypt the drive for imaging.


PCIe Support

The Ditto supports imaging NVMe drives and using NVMe drives as a Destination device. Additionally, other PCIe devices can be accessed using PCIe adapters.


Complete and Secure Erasure

Ditto can sanitize drives with preset erase modes or a user configurable pattern. NVMe devices and other drives can be securely wiped using a variety of sanitization modes including DOD Clear and Sanitize modes plus NIST800-88 Clear and Purge. The drive can also be formatted after the erase is complete.
